Special Episode: The Familiar Strange & All Things Myanmar with Myanmar Musings!

Surprise! We are so pleased to show you all a collaborative project we did with our friends and yours at Myanmar Musings! 

In this very special episode, Familiar Stranger Alex D’Aloia sat down with Luke Corbin, Anthea Snowsill, Michael Dunford and Dinith Adikari to discuss all things Myanmar. Join us as we explore the tea shops of downtown Yangoon all the way to the mountains of the Northern Shan state. We talk about masculinity, ethnicity and agricultural practises. It was such a pleasure to have collaborated with Myanmar Musings and we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did!
